There’s a fun new exhibition in Torremolinos and it’s got some pretty massive inhabitants… Dinosaurs!

Here’s a quick summary of what you’ll find at the Dinosaurios Park:
- Life size Dinosaur fossils
- Mechanical dinosaurs which come to life with their unique movements and sounds.

Aventura Amazonia, a new adventure park built amongst the trees, has just opened inMarbella. This new and innovative concept – apart from being great fun – is totally respectful of nature and the natural surroundings where it is located.
Visitors can enjoy 73 different challenges and 20 impressive zip lines including the longest in Andalucía (240 metresof exhilarating descent!). You get to decide which adventure circuit you want to attempt; all games and circuits are grouped according to their difficulty level, very much like ski slopes! Continue Reading →
Next week is half term here in Andalucía (we call it Semana Blanca) and many children will be off school. Because of this, the Bioparc in Fuengirola (Zoo) has decided to put on some extra activities targeted mainly at children – although no reason why adults can’t join in!
If you’re staying at Sunset Beach Club for half term next week and haven’t visited the Bioparc in Fuengirola yet, this is the perfect chance to do so.
Between the 1st and 4th of March, visitors to the park will be able to enjoy free guided tours in the morning (for parents and their children); in the afternoon, there will be special educational workshops designed to explain to visitors, in an easy and non-techie way, facts about protected and endangered species which face extinction.
A visit to the Bioparc is a great day out for all the family. The park is very well maintained and a lot of care and attention has gone in to ensuring a fantastic experience for kids and adults alike.
